Capped Bust Half Dollar Attribution Guide
Obverse: Star 1 points to the center of a dentil. The “8’s” are thick, and so is tip of “2”. Only the first five 1828 marriages have a curled base pointed top “2”. Sometimes there are die defect lines below bust, left of date. (Same obverse as O-102.)
Reverse: Upper portion of “F” is filled, on most specimens. Very early die state does not have this filling. “I” centered below “T”. On the first five marriages, the reverse is key to attribution.
